We're getting ready for summer and celebrating the science of investigating and interpreting evidence. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to collect clues, meet new people and have fun!

Human life has become entangled with plastic. It's almost impossible to imagine our lives without it. The material makes our tasks easier, allows us to be faster and lighter, and as a result, we consume it in monumental quantities. What if the production of plastic is no longer possible or economical? What if the materials we discard today become our most valuable resource? What if we are already dressed in, sheltered by and relying on plastic for sustenance, safety and survival?
Entanglement (by artist Michael JP Hall) is a series of six large-format photographs that portrays a vision of our interdependent relationship with plastics. It presents a powerful, proud and vulnerable people, a unified culture responding collectively to the challenges of waste with resilience, patience and strength.
Exhibition runs until July 8, 2016.
Proximity (by artist Michael JP Hall) is a series of rescued, post-industrial lightboxes depicting double-exposure images of human faces over natural environments. Each lightbox was rescued from a Vancouver salvage yard, cleaned, sanded, repaired and retro-fitted with low-wattage LED light fixtures. The boxes create dynamic and vibrant images that magically transform spaces at night.
Exhibition runs until August 8, 2016.
